Well gang, it's been a couple of weeks since I last talked to you. But I have to admit, I enjoyed the break. My youngest son, the aspiring actor, rocked it in a play called Rose Red. (Delivered to the eponymous character, his line "Gadzooks! You are a wild youth!" brought down the house.) My eldest, the occasional musician, sailed through his piano recital with a breathtakingly perfect rendition of Beethoven's "Für Elise." (Which is somewhat amazing considering how much it sounds like a baseball bat hitting a squeezebox in the back alley of a pachinko parlor during practice time.) Plus, we celebrated the rare white Christmas, which is always a nice touch.
I could go on: My boys and I played games, read books, saw movies, entertained endless ideas, hung après-Xmas lights, clobbered each other, and spent what seemed like a year full of days in a sometimes peaceful, sometimes chaotic realm of imaginative mayhem. Honestly, if I were asked to replay a handful of days for the rest of eternity, I would respectfully decline. But if, you know, some big scary dude got all muscly and made me, these last days would be them.
The upshot is that I return to you in 2013 much as I left you at the beginning of 2012, restored and ready for more. Today, in fact---this very day---I suddenly reappear to show you how to construct a single-artboard, resolution-independent 2013 calendar for the new year. All inside that surge protector of smooth-line vectors, Adobe Illustrator.
